A dock on the bay

Some of my best art work has been created when I've been alone with my thoughts just me and my camera.  When I photograph I'll listen to my surroundings and try to take in whats happening at that moment "living in the now".  I ask myself where am I, what do I want and where can I find it.  I listen to little noises like the wind, distant animal life soft whispers of the ocean.  Might sound a little corny I know but I feel inspired (more artistic) when I work alone.  Inspiration.  I think it's an amazing word for us to have in our society, it means so much and I'm sure I'm not the only one that can relate to this.  Anyone with a dream who had the determination to to see it to fruition.  I have put the definition of Inspiration down for everyone.  There are a couple of questions I would like to ask What inspires greatness?  and What inspires you to be a better... ____  (Fill in the blank) I don't know, but I would love to hear what you think in the comments below.

in·spi·ra·tion [in-spuh-rey-shuhn]
1. an inspiring or animating action or influence: I cannot writepoetry without inspiration.
2. something inspired, as an idea.
3. a result of inspired activity.
4. a thing or person that inspires.
a divine influence directly and immediately exerted upon the mind or soul.


  1. Smart people inspire me to be great. My faith inspires me to be a better person. Religion, or more speficially faith, normally doesn't come up in conversations but when people find out that God is important to me I hope they form a positive assocation between my actions and religion. Lol, and I decided upon my answer before I saw your mention of theology--so no, I was not primed or anything.

  2. Thank you very much for sharing that with us. It's good to push ourselves and aim for nothing less than the best.
